Today we find ourselves in a unique transition when it comes to cars and safety.
Too many distracting devices from cell phones to dash board electronics and displays, are adding to all of the other distractions we have always had. Accidents and death tolls are adding up. You see a car wandering down the road, crossing over the line. You know that they are probably talking on their cell or texting. It is everywhere; commonplace.
Then comes modern technology to the rescue. Automatic warning systems, automatic braking, blind spot buzzers and all sorts of driver assists. Soon self-driving cars will arrive, which would all but eliminate the distractions we are so concerned with today. But they are not here yet and when they start coming there will be a generation or two of obsolete cars that will have to be upgraded or recycled before we can enjoy the new and safer models. We are in that transition period. Almost like when TV replaced radio or the advent of the dishwasher or the cure for a disease or indoor plumbing for that matter.
I can’t wait! No, really, I can not wait!
